WATCH: Ontario Premier Doug Ford Swallows a Bee During Live Press Conference

Ontario Premier Doug Ford swallowed a bee during a live press conference on Saturday.

Ford was speaking about privatizing healthcare in Dundalk, Ontario, when the bee flew straight into his mouth.

“Holy Christ, I just swallowed a bee!,” Ford said, while coughing and reaching into his mouth

Ford quickly joked about the strange situation saying, “I’m good, he’s down here buzzing around right now. He has a lot of real estate.”

“This is going to be replayed over and over again,” Ford continued to joke about the certain oncoming buzz over the incident.

Ford was immediately laughing about the incident and taking it in stride, laughing off the “blooper.”

“He’s wedged in my throat, sorry guys,” the Premier told media, touching his throat. “Man, he went right down the hatch.”

The politician let everyone know that he was okay, and that “the bee is building a hive down there.”

According to a report from CP24, “Ford was in the small rural area southwest of Barrie to announce an investment of $500,000 in the Ontario-based company Greenlid, which produces compostable and sustainable products.”

A spokesperson for Ford told the station that he is “doing well” following the incident.
